Premier League Game Week 20 Tips & Preview

Following a weekend full of FA Cup ties the Premier League returns with a full round of fixtures kicking off from Wednesday morning (AEST).

Everton attempt to slow the roll of Leicester City, Man U are gifted the bye round against Sheffield United and Liverpool attempt rediscover some scoring form when they head to Hotspur Stadium.

We’ve previewed all 10 Game Week 20 Premier League fixtures and provided our best betting plays along the way!

CRYSTAL PALACE VS WEST HAM
WEST HAM $2.35

West Ham travel cross town in their search for six straight victories across all competitions, while Crystal are out to break a three match losing streak.

The Hammers defence can largely be credited with their recent success, conceding just once across their five match win streak.

Alternatively, the Eagles have lacked a punch moving forward, currently scoreless over their last three outings.

West Ham have the wind in their sails and should cruise home against the Eagles here.

NEWCASTLE VS LEEDS
LEEDS $1.94

Back against the Toons!

Steve Bruce is holding onto his job by the skin of his teeth at the moment, a defeat here will be Newcastle’s 8th over their last 10 fixtures in all comps (2D).

Leeds run into this fixture with fresh legs after their GW19 match against the Saint was postponed, at just under evens they’re well worth a crack against a side who can’t buy a win at the minute.

SOUTHAMPTON VS ARSENAL
ARSENAL $2.35

The Gunners head to St. Mary’s Stadium for the second time in under a week, following a 1-0 defeat to the Saints in the FA Cup.

Arteta will ring in the changes for this PL tie, with Pepe, Willian and and Nketiah all failing to fire over the weekend.

Youngsters Saka and Smith Rowe have turned Arsenal’s flailing season around since the new year, and should prove a handful on their return to the starting 11.

A win for the Gunners will see them leapfrog the Saints back into the top ten and straight back into contention for European football, an opportunity they can’t afford to let slip.

WEST BROM VS MAN CITY
Man City $1.80

Manchester City will move to the top of the league standings should they see off the Baggies at the Hawthorns on Wednesday morning (AEST).

The Citizens are by far and away the form side of the comp, undefeated across their last ten Premier League fixtures (8W, 2D) and looking for their seventh win on the trot.

Alternatively, the Baggies are well and truely entrench in the relegation battle, dwelling six points and 21 goals behind Brighton in 17th spot.

The Citizens have kept eight clean sheets across their past 10 PL fixtures and shouldn’t have any issues holding out a toothless Baggies outfit.

CHELSEA VS WOLVES
Both Teams to Score $1.87

Chelsea and Wolverhampton come together at the Bridge, with both sides desperate to secure 3 competition points.

The Wolves have endured a disastrous run of form, claiming just one win from their last nine league starts (6L, 2D).

The Blues haven’t been traveling much better, with two wins from their last eight league fixtures (5L, 1D), only scoring over 1.5 goals in one of those fixtures.

Lampard will need to continue searching for a quick fix with Roman Abramovich patience wearing paper thin.

Both teams to score has saluted in six of the Wolves past seven PL fixtures, with both managers pushing for all three points I can see that trend continuing here.

 

BURNLEY VS ASTON VILLA
Under 2.5 $1.85

Burnley and Villa are set to meet for the second time in five weeks, with both sides looking to improve from that lacklustre 0-0 result.

The Clarets are floating on cloud-nine after spoiling Liverpool’s incredible 68-game undefeated league run at Anfield thanks to an Ashley Barnes penalty.

Seven of Burnley’s last nine PL fixtures have gone UNDER 1.5 goals, while Martinez has kept eight clean sheets across his last 16 league starts, more than any other keeper!

All signs are pointing towards low scoring affair at Turf Moor, backing the Unders has served me well of late and I won’t be straying from the winning formula here.

BRIGHTON VS FULHAM
DRAW $3.25

Fulham travel south to take on Brighton in the “Change the station” Derby at Amex Stadium.

The Cottagers look set to boomerang back into the Championship after failing to claim a win across their past eight PL fixtures (3L, 5D).

The Seagulls are just five points clear of the relegation zone in 17th after claiming their first win in 10 PL starts.

Brighton are yet to claim a home win this season (5D, 4L) and have recorded the most draws in the league to date (8).

Neither side’s form breathes any confidence heading into this clash, with the ‘Draw’ looking the best value at $3.25.

EVERTON VS LEICESTER
EVERTON $2.75

Leicester are out to record their fifth league win on the trot and eighth match undefeated when they play host to the Toffees at King Power Stadium.

Though Brendan Rodgers will have to make do without club talisman Jamie Vardy, who is absent due to a hernia.

Everton have also been looking dangerous lately, claiming five wins from their last six Premier League fixtures, including victories over Chelsea, Arsenal and Leicester City!

The Toffees are looking to claim three straight victories over the Foxes for the first time in the clubs history, with Vardy on the sideline it’s never been more likely.

MAN UTD VS SHEFF UTD
SGM: Man U HT/FT + Fernandes to Score $2.87

League leaders Manchester United play host to cellar dwellers Sheffield United, with 35 competition points separating the pair.

The Red Devils are undefeated since the beginning of November 2020 (10W,3D) and are coming off a huge 3-2 victory over arch rivals Liverpool in the FA Cup.

Ole gave Bruno Fernandes a spell over the weekend, with the midfielder coming off the bench to clinch the win with a stunning free kick.

This match is set up for the Portuguese superstar, with a pair of fresh legs I’m expecting Bruno to terrorise the Blades’ back four here.

TOTTENHAM VS LIVERPOOL
TOTTENHAM $3.10

We’re forced to wait until Friday morning (AEST) for match of the round, as Liverpool look to break their four match winless streak in the league at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Spurs are undefeated across their last seven fixtures in all competitions (5W, 2D) and can force their way into the top four at the expense of their opponents with a win here.

Astonishingly, the Reds are scoreless across their last four PL contests and look a shell of their 2019/20 league winning outfit.

With Liverpool haemorrhaging points at the moment, there’s no world where a Mourinho managed side doesn’t cash in here.
